On tap at Stone Sour Fest 2014. Golden pour, with a slight haze, and a white head. Nice tart lemons, hay, green tea, acidic, lemon grass, and a bit bready. Tasty sour.

illidurit (2286) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 21, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours orangey gold with a dense white head. Lemongrass and verbena aroma, mild herbalness and citrus peel, citric acid. Flavor follows with heavy lemon and lemonhead candy, green tea and acetic acid. Even the mouthfeel is really Meyer lemony.

On tap at the brewery. Pours golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of sourness, some tea, light citrus and other light fruits, oak notes, and pale malts. Flavor the same with a cool blend but sort of weird. Average texture. A good beer.
